navigator.javaEnabled always returns false in Mozilla/Opera

P: n/a
Hello;

I am trying to test changes to my site (made only on my local machine so
far) in IE v6, Mozilla 1.6, and Opera 7.5.

When I test "navigator.javaEnabled in IE it corretly reports true/false
depending on whether javascript is enabled.

However, both Mozilla and Opera *always* return false. How can I properly
test to see if javascript is enabled/disabled in these two browsers? (If you
have a reference on the web, please point me to it as I've spent several
hours trying to find what I need.)

TIA.

Charles...

Java and Javascript are different things
..javaEnabled == true means you the browser
can run Java *applets*.
